Axial GPI's Momentary only? or can they be ON|OFF?

At VTA, I edit on an Axial 3000 w/ vers. 4.3 Display and Comms. Yesterday, we hooked up an HD logo inserter for 'bugging' hour long shows via GPI's.

The logo inserter really wants ON|OFF GPI's but apparently the Axial only generates momentary contact closures. I used to edit on a CMX340 and it was capable of programming a given GPI to be either momentary or ON|OFF. Is the Axial capable on making its GPI's ON|OFF? I didn't see that feature mentioned in either the online help of printed docs.

Unfortunately you can not keep the GPI on. You can increase the length of the trigger time by modifying the file start30.cmds this file you will find in C:Axial3000sys Set GPI pulse width in fields individually for each GPI All GPI default to 2 field pulse width, but this may be modified as desired Add a line for each GPI you wish to customize, copying the example below Format is GPISetDefaultPulse( GPI Number , Pulse Width in fields) Example: GPISetDefaultPulse ( 1 , 2 ) Best Regards Atul Vaidya Abekas Tech Support
